Proposed Legislation Would Toughen DUI Law

A state lawmaker is pushing a plan that would give Florida one of the toughest DUI laws in the country.

The proposed legislation would slap repeat drunk drivers with a minimum two-year jail sentence instead of the current 30 days in jail if they're convicted of a fourth DUI.

Rep. Gayle Harrell, a Republican of Stuart, is sponsoring the bill.

Harrell's plan also includes boating under the influence. Any combination of operating a boat or vehicle under the influence would count toward the minimum jail sentence.

Her bill comes up for its first review in a House committee this week.
